Copycat Swiss Chalet Sauce | THM: FP

Save for later!

One of the dinners our kids enjoy most is “Swiss Chalet chicken and sauce.” It’s too expensive for our family of 7 to eat out regularly, so sometimes, when I’ve gone grocery shopping late in the afternoon, I’ll bring back a store-bought rotisserie chicken and the accompanying sauce. On days I’m less pressed for time, we can enjoy the same amazing flavor by roasting a whole chicken in our own oven and dipping the pieces in this low-carb, gluten-free, sugar-free, THM Fuel Pull, copycat Swiss Chalet sauce!

American friends, I imagine our Swiss Chalet is comparable to your Chick-Fil-A, although it’s not decidedly Christian owned and operated. It’s “the chicken restaurant” chain here – the place people go when they’re craving the bird for lunch or dinner.

Swiss Chalet is famous for their chicken just as much as they are for their sauce. It’s the perfect blend of spices and tang for dipping cooked chicken into. This copycat Swiss Chalet Sauce recipe taste awfully close to the real deal. Don’t be alarmed by the long list of ingredients; you probably have all of them right inside your spice cupboard or pantry:

Simmered together for a few minutes in a saucepan and thickened a little with xanthum gum, this sauce will turn your kitchen into your own Swiss Chalet. Enjoy.

Yield: 2 cups

  1. 5This brings back memories. They used to be all over Buffalo then one day closed up. My mother loved this sauce. She would drink it. I think I’ll try this next time I roast a chicken. Wow! It’ll be like a taste of home.

    • OMG exactly what I was thinking…saw this & remember the delish chicken! Just returned to B’lo after 13 rs. in NC. Feels so good to be home but I’m cold 😉

    • I miss Buffalo and the Chalet (and my grandparents that loved it) so dearly. Always went to the Niagara Falls Boulevard location after Christmas. Makes me all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. I can’t wait to try this.

  2. I have tried to use xantham gum to thicken gravy and it just went lumpy. I added it to the hot liquid like you do in this recipe.
    What’s the secret?
    Thanks for all your recipes!

  3. Just want to point out for anyone that likes to give their dog a taste, xylitol is poisonous and causes them to go into organ failure quickly. Otherwise, this is an excellent recipe for dieters to have their chicken and their sauce too
